9/17 Jeff Faux: The Servant Economy & LIVE OWS 1 Yr Anniversary

September 17, 2012

On today’s show Majority Report producers Matt & Michael reported from Occupy Wall Street’s one year anniversary and found an energetic group of protesters committed to getting Occupy back in the center of American politics. They also spoke with several Occupy protesters including Allison Kilkenny from Citizen Radio, freelance journalist and our Occupy Wall Street guy Jeff Smith, and retired Philly Police Captain Ray Lewis and others.

Also in a pre-recorded interview Sam spoke with economist and author Jeff Faux about his new book the Servant Economy on why America’s middle class is hollowing out and why we are turning into a servant driven economy.
